The group I game with is picking this up, and while I have no interest in the warmachine half, the hordes half looks fun to me. I've chosen legion and minions. How nesasary are troops? I mean can I get away with warbeast and warlocks only for legion? I don't mind the gatormen for minions, and the farrow seem nice if I want to run Lord Carver.
I really really dislike the nyss models, though the ogrun seem ok.
